Every great magic trick consists of three acts. The first act is called the Pledge. The magician shows you something ordinary, but of course it probably isn't. The second act is called the Turn. The magician makes his ordinary something do something extraordinary. Now if you're looking for the secret you won't find it, that's why there's a third act called the Prestige. This is the part with the twists and turns, where lives hang in the balance, and you see something shocking you've never seen before.
Two Magicians. One Trick. When does illusion become reality?
From Christopher Nolan (Batman Begins, Memento), comes an equally dark saga centering around two magicians- Rupert Angier (Hugh Jackman) and Alfred Borden (Christian Bale). What starts out as a friendly rivalry between two magicians on the rise turns into an intense rivalry, a deadly battle which affects everyone around them.
Then, Borden discovers the ultimate trick... but as Angier struggles to learn it's secrets, he discovers that the trick may not be just a trick, afterall.
Rules believe me, this hurts me more than it does you
01. No introductory posts, please. Nobody reads them, and they take up space. 02. Fics, please, or graphics. No posts that are just 'oh, christian bale is sooooo h0tt!', etc. We know he's hot. Damn, a blind man would know. Squeel somewhere else. There are comms dedicated to that sort of thing. 03. Do behave. No net speak. Foul language is allowed in fics, but no catfights among members, please. And no preaching hellfire and brimstone upon all who slash. You look to your own sins, 'kay? 04. Fics belong behind lj-cuts, no matter how short. Otherwise, they just clog up flists.
